Patrick J. Adams and Troian Bellisario announce the birth of their first child

The couple kept Troian's pregnancy a secret for nine months


Patrick J. Adams and Troian Bellisario have announced the birth of their first child, a baby girl.

The couple, who wed in December 2016, never confirmed that they were expecting – despite media multiple outlets reporting Troian’s pregnancy.

However, the pair finally broke their silence as they both announced the birth of their baby girl on Instagram.

Posting a photo of their daughter, Troian wrote: “I cannot express how grateful I am. To the people who have protected us and kept our growing family safe and respected our privacy.”

“To our tribe for expanding with grace and exponential amounts of love. To my @halfadams for being so supportive during every moment of my pregnancy and her birth.

“And to whatever incredible force of fate that brought this baby girl into our lives. I couldn’t be more proud to be her mother. To bring a new girl into this world and to do my best to raise her to be kind, strong and whatever the heck she wants to be,” she added.

Patrick shared the same photo, alongside the caption: “The world just got 8lbs heavier. Thank you to everyone who fought for and protected our privacy during this incredible and beautiful time in our lives.”

“Everyone is happy and healthy and loving every moment of this. I could not be more excited to bring a baby girl into this world at this moment.

“We will raise her to be powerful, to always speak her mind and heart and to live without fear. It’s a brand new day and a brave new world and they are both beautiful.”
